“I learned to sew from my mother, and she learned from her mother and aunt. I wanted this piece to not only depict the process of learning, sharing and making, but also the creating of memories that are passed down with love through generations. I hope it resonates with anyone who has lovingly carried on any special tradition within her family." –Susan Lordi
A gift to celebrate new beginnings, new babies, new families… and the loving relationships that develop between parent and child, grandparent and child.

Description
Willow Tree sculptural art forms beautifully express love, closeness, healing, courage, hope… all the emotions of a life well lived. Artist Susan Lordi hand carves the original of each figure from her studio in Kansas City Missouri. Pieces are cast from her original carvings, and individually painted by hand. Expression is revealed through gestures only… a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body. The simplicity of form and absence of facial features signify Willow Tree. It is Susan’s hope that these pieces be meaningful to both giver and receiver.
